No matter how worried, embarrassed, frustrated or stressed you are about your foot problem, I'm pretty sure I've seen it before and I can find you a solution.
Covid-19 Restrictions - FAQ
Are you still open?
Yes. Medical practices like mine can remain open during all tiers of COVID19 restrictions. As you would expect, for your safety, I adhere to and comply with the guidelines on both infection control and appropriate use of PPE. I take my temperature daily to ensure it is within normal ranges and that I am safe to work with people face to face.
What sort of appointments are you offering?
I offer both video and face to face and consultations for your safety and convenience
Do I need to wear a face mask in your clinic?
Yes, as we are unable to maintain 2 metres distance you do need to wear a face mask indoors when you come and see me.
Where do I wait when I arrive at clinic?
If you come in a car, I ask that you park on my drive and wait in your car until I come out for you.
What happens when I arrive?
I will come out to your car, ask you some Covid screening questions and take your temperature, you will then be invited in (wearing your face covering) as long as you are symptom free and your temperature is within normal ranges. You will be asked to apply antimicrobial hand gel on entry.
Will I ‘cross over’ with anyone else in the clinic?
No, I have built in extra ‘spacing and ventilation time’ in between appointments, I also use this ‘buffer’ time to clean all surfaces in between patients.
Can I bring someone with me or accompany anyone?
Ideally, no. If you are bringing someone, I ask that you wait in the car while they come in for their treatment. Obviously, If you are accompanying a minor or someone with a disability or impairment and they need you to be with them, this is an exception as you would be regarded as in the same ‘bubble’. You would still need to wear a mask indoors and have your temperature taken before entry.
Fungal infections, ingrown toenails, thick or deformed nails can be unsightly and extremely painful. Don't be embarrassed, I've seen it all before.
Show me your feet and I'll get them sorted.
Have you got a 'thing' that you can't get rid of? Or something you're worried about or can't identify? Over the years I've seen many things on many feet. I know that not knowing can be worrying so I'm here to provide specialist advice.
People love how I can help ...
Fun and friendly but highly professional. My first experience of podiatry and I'm glad it was Potty Purple! Beginnings of ingrowing toenail but sorted out by Dianne in no time. Highly recommended.
Dianne was very professional and did a thorough job on my in growing toenails. She explained how my nails grew, offered long term advice and scheduled a follow up session immediately on request. Highly recommended.
Dianne was absolutely brilliant. Friendly, caring and professional. She put me at ease immediately and gave me excellent advice and treatment. I would highly recommend. Thank you so much.
A fab local business who’s knowledge and research astounds us! Diane goes above and beyond for her patients, she really has an amazing passion for what she does.
After one session, my previously thick, unsightly toe nails now look and (more importantly) feel so much better. Dianne explained the cause of my nail problems and how she could deal with them. If you have similar problems, look no further, I highly recommend Lane Ends. And Dianne is very professional and a lovely lady.
Went to see Dianne about a week ago, limped in and danced out. She did a wonderful job on my feet. Thank you.
Dianne is such an amazing woman! Doesn’t shy away from a problem and is always willing to help and comfort you to make you feel good about whatever your problem may be. I was uneasy and slightly scared walking in, but during my time I almost dozed off in the chair and felt like I was having a chat with someone I’d known all my life!! Highly recommend and will definitely be back if I have any other problems.
Sitting is the new smoking
Not being mobile is the fast track to physical and mental decline and foot pain is a big cause of immobility.
